It’s been almost a year since I published my book Retirement Transition. I’ve posted about the struggle to do the promotional activities "suggested" to make it a best seller. That level of activity requires more than I am willing to give. Yet, I still take advantage of the promotional opportunities as they appear and surprisingly, … Continue reading Book Seminar/Interviews
I thought I might share some of my thought-process in choosing a 2020 WOTY to encourage others to think through their own word selection.
